The 2018 TVS Apache 160 has been spotted standstill in Vishakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh.
The upcoming TVS Apache 160 has been spied yet again in India. MotorBeam reader Praveen Chinnala spotted the motorcycle and clicked these images for us.
Though this bike is labeled as the Apache 200 4V, this isn’t one courtesy the flat handlebar, single seat setup, skinnier rear tyre, regular alloy wheels (not the design centric ones seen on the Apache 200) and the lack of a rear disc brake. This is the 2018 Apache 160 as TVS gives the red rim stripes only to the Apache 160, whereas the Apache 180 and 200 get the white rim stripes.
The bike borrows the same design cues from its bigger sibling, the Apache 200. The bikini fairing, LED tail-lights, turn indicators, fuel-tank, double barrel exhaust and all-digital instrument cluster are all borrowed from the Apache 200. The Apache 160 also, for the first-time gets a monoshock at the rear.
The 2018 Apache 160 is expected to be powered by the same 160cc single-cylinder engine that powers the current model. This motor produces 15.2 HP and 13.1 Nm, matched to a 5-speed gearbox. Though the bike doesn’t feature rear disc brake here, TVS could offer it at least as an option.
TVS hasn’t put a word on the launch of this bike yet and the Apache 180 will also get a similar makeover. The 2018 Apache 160 will rival the Pulsar NS 160, Suzuki Gixxer, Honda CB Hornet 160R and Yamaha FZ V2.0.
